It's Friday- Happy New Year! My favorite New Year Cocktail

It makes both financial and practical sense to serve a single cocktail when entertaining friends and family.   This year when some of our friends visited for the holidays,  I tried a cocktail which was an instant hit with everyone. This can be served as a single cocktail or prepared for a group, either way you will receive tons of praise.

It  may seem like a summer cocktail but this mix has a lot of warmth ( Absolut, Wine and St Germain) do not be fooled!  It is seasonless.

White Sangria.....not the usual
To make for 10 or more

1 bottle St Germain Liqueur
1 bottle 750 Ml Absolut Citron or Skky Citrus Vodka
1 bottle Sauvignon Blanc ( good quality)
I half bottle of 2 litre Sprite or Lemon Lime Soda
4 bottles of Lemon Lime Bitters  200 ml ( liquor stores or select supermarkets)
1 2 quart bottle of lemonade
6 lemons ( sliced)

Pour all of the ingredients into a large pitcher, punch bowl or decanter and stir.

Place the lemon slices in the pitcher. Do not put ice.  Put some lemon slices aside for individual serving.

Serve in wine glasses,  or collins glasses, no paper cups please... with crushed ice and a lemon slice.

This is one of the best, enjoy!

Happy New Year!
